It appears that Mistico has finally, after years of "negotiations," signed with the WWE.

There's a one in a billion chance, but if we somehow get Mistico vs Del Rio at WM, I'd order the show.

I guess there's more of a chance we get Rudo Mistico vs Rey.

Any reason to expect this will go better than when they signed Ultimate Dragon?

Is he the mid-level face they need so badly on Smack!down? I think he could fit that easily. But they'll still throw some faces over there in April's draft. I just hope they put him on SD, so he can work. Rather than on RAW where he would have to act.

That was EIGHT YEARS AGO? If you're gonna make a reference, bring up Alberto del Rio (Dos Caras Jr.)

Better info and discussion over at Cubs' place (thecubsfan.com)

Best question is will they (A) unmask him or (B) make zillions of dollars selling masks? Probably (A) (see: Dos Caras Jr.) ALTHOUGH maybe they keep him masked since he probably won't be talking in English as much as del Rio?

I would guess (B), as they could see him as Rey's successor, given how much time Rey has been missing in recent times.

Former creative team memeber Court Bauer says he tried to get The WWE to bring Mistico in five years ago and it was nixed http://www.prowrestling.net/artman/publish/WWE/article10016495.shtml

I'd be surprised if Mistico was on TV by WM. It was a long time between when Alberto del Rio signed, and when he finally made it to the WWE. Part of that was injury, but his style was close to the matches WWE works than what Mistico's been doing of late. Think SummerSlam or much later.

The deal in 2007 wasn't as much nixed by the creative committee as WWE just didn't make a strong enough push to steal Mistico away at that time. Mistico had a lot of security as CMLL's top star at the time, and WWE really hasn't spent on 'unproven' talent since maybe Brock Lesnar. Circumstances have changed for Mistico.

The Ultimo Dragon comparison is actually fair; Dragon was not the Dragon he was before the botched arm surgery*, but not being able to do WWE promos hurts. It was said in 2007 that Mistico had similar language problems, but it has been three plus years, he's been thinking about this move for a while, and he could've been proactive about it.

* - there's another conversation about if Mistico is the same Mistico he was three years ago, but I'm making this too long.

The Dos Caras Jr. mask looked pretty boring, so maybe taking it off him wasn't a bad idea.

Let me amend my Ultimate Dragon reference this way: Mexicools, anyone?

I've never seen the guy wrestle before. Who is he comparable to, both style-wise and talent-wise?

Rey Misterio is the simplest US comparison for both, but much more towards his 1996 WCW debut than today's Misterio.

There are tons of clips and full matches of him on YouTube and DailyMotion (in varying levels of video quality). This one is from 2009.
